Disqus sucks, Part 2
So, I turned off Disqus and discovered that the built-in WP comments thing is worthless. And without Disqus filtering spam, we’ve been getting dozens of spam messages per post every day and it was depressing and disappointing. For today’s example, of 15 comments four were actual comments. I tried to turn on Askimet, and it gave me some incomprehensible runaround and ended up asking me to create an entire new site!
Today, I had a go at trying to turn off the ads on Disqus and failed. So I’ve turned it back off again. Tried for an hour, and no dice. My hatred for Disqus is growing into a raging purple passion. I have gone all over looking for instructions on how to turn off the ads but every page I’ve found says the same thing, “go to the Discovery tab”… Well, boys and girls, Disqus must have figured out that everyone hates their ads because there IS NO DISCOVERY TAB. They’ve reconfigured their site to make those instructions useless.
Tomorrow I will try to see if there is any other thing we can use. Maybe FB. I dunno.
For now, I am simply going to acknowledge that I do not know how the stupid thing works.
I will now give up, put on a flowery hat and go sit in the garden and aggressively read my book at the innernet.
